Project Title: Smallpox Outbreak
The purpose of our project is to determine how a smallpox
outbreak effects the population of a large U.S. city.
Due to recent terrorist attacks on the U.S., this project deals with a
relevent issue that may provide needed answers.
We will develop a simulation base on SIR models. We will then write a
C++ program to run our simulation. We will consider several variables
such as the size of the city
and the infectional death rate of smallpox. We will then use a math
formula to determine how many people will be infected and how many of
will die. We expect to provide an accurate model for a smallpox
outbreak in a large U.S. city.
